History of Westmount
The land that is now Westmount used to be owned by Malcolm Groat, a Hudson Bay Company employee who settled in the area in 1878. Malcolm Groat later sold his land to real estate developers and by 1910, the city of Edmonton had annexed the rest of his land. Westmount became an established neighbourhood by 1910. Most of the heritage homes spread around the neighbourhood were built before 1950, while apartments, which account for more than 50% of the dwellings, were built recently.
